Property Condition Assessment

Property Condition Assessment (PCA) is a baseline commercial property inspection performed according to the leading industry standard for commercial property ASTM E-2018-08.  Property Condition Assessment includes site and building inspection, document review and interview of knowledgeable persons to determine current property condition, assess need for immediate, near-term and long-term repair, replacement and upgrades and estimate and project costs over time.

Property Condition Assessment is the standard for commercial building inspection and assessment pre-purchase, pre-lease and end of lease, especially net lease and triple-net lease.  The typical due diligence package for commercial property includes Property Condition Assessment together with Phase 1 Environmental Assessment.  USA Due Diligence Services is a single-source due diligence services provider and performs Property Condition Assessment as a stand-alone service and Property Condition Assessment and Phase 1 Environmental Assessment as a discounted service package price for your lowest cost for the combination of services. 

Property Condition Assessment assists owners and buyers in purchase, sale, lease decisions and negotiation, understanding operation and maintenance requirements and life cycle which also helps provide confidence to prospective investors and lenders.

The scope of inspection needed and specific areas to be inspected are based on various factors.  Age, use, occupancy, construction type and even climate are all considered and incorporated into a property-specific inspection and assessment protocol.

If you own or manage one or multiple facilities...



Facility Condition Assessment

Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) is a type of property condition assessment of a single commercial facility or a group of owned or leased facilities often in multiple locations around the country that may vary in terms of age, design and construction methods and materials.  The purpose of Facility Condition Assessment is to determine current property condition, identify immediate maintenance, repair and replacement requirements, and establish a 5 - 7 year schedule of required maintenance, repairs, replacements and desirable upgrades, set priorities and estimate and project costs over time.  A complete Facility Condition Assessment may also include Environmental Records Search and Risk Assessment, a form of environmental assessment that delivers a lot of information at a low cost.  In end of lease situations Facility Condition Assessment may be used to establish that you are leaving the facility in satisfactory condition.  In this case a schedule of future required maintenance, repairs, replacements and upgrades may be eliminated from the scope of work and if so the price of the service would be discounted accordingly.

The Purpose

Facility Condition Assessment allows for effective budgeting and can maximize building and equipment life cycle.  Evaluation of facility costs over time is also invaluable when considering whether to expand and/or re-purpose an existing facility of if it would be more cost-effective to move to a new facility.

The Reason

Facilities Condition Assessment includes inspection of all building structure, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, roofing, interior and exterior finishes, etc.  It includes estimates of necessary and recommended repairs plus a Capital Reserves Table of annual budget amounts to cover required and recommended repairs, replacement, upgrades over the next 7 years of ownership, and these amounts are adjusted for inflation.  Your USA Due Diligence Services consultant works with you to understand your objectives and resources.  Your assessment is specific to your property class A, B or C, and whether you plan to maintain existing grade or upgrade the property.  Also, cost of repairs, replacement and upgrades vary based on whether you have in-house skilled staff or depend on outside contractors.  Because your consultant has extensive experience in architecture, engineering and new, renovation and restoration construction, and if you prefer to rely on in-house staff, he can often recommend alternative and innovative products and installation methods for excellent results at the lowest possible cost.  In addition, unlike a standard pre-purchase building inspection, site features including walks, drives and parking areas and landscaping are all included.
